Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
About the Class
During this junior high course, students will analyze and create artwork while exploring a range of mediums. Using both 2D and 3D media, students will learn techniques that will help them visually communicate their view of the world. Through magazine articles, writing, and discussions, students will analyze artwork, explore art careers, debate current art issues, and discover artists and other cultures.
I try to hold on to student artwork for possible inclusion in the Arts & Community Fair in the spring, but I will let students take their work home before then if they prefer. After the fair, artwork may be collected. If it is not collected, it will either be recycled or kept for future examples.
